It's Jesus

What do you want more than anything?  If you could choose just one thing in your life....for yourself....what would it be?  Would you go out and buy something new and extravagant?  Maybe go in search of a new friend because you feel your current ones just aren't giving you all you need to survive the "daily" of your the way you want them too?  Or maybe....if you stop and really think about it....would you take a good long look inside yourself and realize that what you really want....really something....someone....that you have maybe pushed to the outer extremities of your life.  Well....

Obviously....I've been thinking.  I didn't have to think too long....or too hard....because sometimes you just know what it is you need and what it is you want!  Before I go any further here's a side note....

I want to say that I am a Christian....I do know that Jesus saved me and loves me....but sometimes I'm just not staying as close to Him as I know I should and as close to Him as I need to be!  Because of this....I let things rock my boat more than they should! thing I have learned over the last seven years is this....He is faithful....God is faithful!  He allows people to speak into my life and kind of jolt me back to reality!  So what is it....Who is it....that I want more than anything....

Yes....It is more of the Lord in my life!  More of His love....His peace....His hope....His strength.....His joy....His power to change me....His calm in the midst of it all....His reassurance....His living water....His blessing....His mercies that are new every morning....His song in my heart and soul....His light in the middle of my darkness....His straight path for my life when I'm twisting and turning....His goodness....His compassion....His still small voice in the midst of all my noise....His soothing comfort when I am hurting....His sure and steady hand when I am flailing about....His greatness when I am feeling small....His correction when I need to submit....His soothing ointment of healing when I am sick....His forgiveness when I have turned my back towards Him....His arm around me when I am hurting....His amazing....amazing....Grace....because I need it so so much....and the last is the same as the first....His Love that washes over all of me!!

That my friends is what I need and what I want more than anything....because the Lord is who I need and who I want....more than anyone.  Jesus Christ is the One that can fill all the needs and all the wants in my life....and yours....we just have to open up to Him and allow Him to do what He does!

1 Corinthians 1:9Amplified Bible (AMP)

God is faithful (reliable, trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be depended on); by Him you were called into companionship and participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

  1. Amen to 1 Corinthians 1 v.9.
    If we put Him first, and act on the word spoken to us and not just hear it, He will prove that word true. That is what I want most in my life, to hear His word as guidance in my life, to put Him first and to serve Him.
